- Singer Burna Boy has snagged a spot in the official inauguration playlist of Biden and Harris
- The 46-track playlist comprises artistes from different parts of the world
- Burna’s Destiny song off the African Giant album is the only Nigerian song on the playlist
Nigerian singer Damini Ogulu aka Burna Boy has scored another credit to his name as he recently emerged as the only Nigerian artiste featured in the official inauguration playlist of incoming US president and vice-president, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
Hypebeast reports that the 46-track playlist was curated by Benoni Tagoe, Issa Re and D-Nice’s audio everywhere label Raedio.
The playlist which features artistes from different parts of the world is said to be a representation of America’s diversity and also symbolises new beginnings in the country.
Top music stars like Kendrick Lamar, Mary K. Blige, Mac Miller, SZA among others had their songs included in the playlist.
Burna Boy who is the only Nigerian on the list had his single, Destiny, off the African Giant album featured in the playlist.
In the song, the Grammy-nominated artiste sings about enemies making attempts to hinder his path and steal his destiny from him. He, however, warns that they cannot be successful.
The chorus reads:
"Destiny, can’t touch my Destiny
Them are try everything
Them are try take me life
But I won’t let them get the best of me,
Destiny, can’t touch my Destiny
They can take everything I have
They can take my life
They can’t touch my destiny"
Perhaps, the song was featured in the playlist considering the unique circumstances surrounding Biden’s emergence as the next US president.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that the award-winning singer was slammed by popular Ghanaian artiste Shatta Wale.
Shatta Wale took to his Instagram page to allege that Burna Boy gossiped about him during his stay in Ghana.
According to Shatta Wale, Burna Boy should have called him if he had any issue to settle with him instead of gossiping around town.
